Most books about information technology are very technical and their message dates quickly. Riding the Tiger is the one book that a business manager ought to read to keep up with computers - it presents timeless advice on technology usage.

Riding the Tiger will show you how to make information management more effective in your organization and how to prevent your organization from spending too much money on information technology. It provides a framework for planning your use of information technology that is appropriate for any manager in any organization.

Riding the Tiger is every business manager's manual for understanding how to harness the power of the tiger. From what you do as a manager, to how to make your business objectives drive your information management strategy, to managing or becoming involved in a project, this book will help business managers make a difference when information technology projects are proposed to them or when they are initiating projects with suppliers.
